UPDATE: The iPhone SE is no longer available to purchase on Apple's clearance site, marking the second time in a week that all variants and colors have sold out in under 24 hours.


After initially discontinuing the iPhone SE in September, Apple’s 4-inch smartphone made a brief return to its website, albeit in the clearance section, earlier this week. The discounted stock sold out in less than 24 hours and all traces of the device disappeared, yet today the smartphone has made another unexpected return.

Like last time, the popular model is being sold in new, unopened boxes to customers that may still be interested. The entry-level 32GB model now costs just $249, down $100 over its previous retail price of $349. Similarly, Apple has reduced the 128GB model’s price tag by a whopping $150 down to just $399.

The compact device, which was first introduced back in 2016, is powered by the Apple A9 chipset. This can be found inside the iPhone 6s series and the iPad (2017). The smartphone also features a single 12-megapixel camera on the rear and a front-facing camera, although this isn’t exactly flagship quality at just 1.2-megapixels.

Apple’s iPhone SE is also its last smartphone with a headphone jack so, for those of you looking for an iOS device with one, this may be your chance.

As was the case earlier this week, there’s no indication as to how long iPhone SE stock will last. Because of this, we’d recommend being quick if the offer interests you. Alternatively, a 32GB iPhone SE for Straight Talk can be picked up new for just $139 at Walmart.
